Hi Josh,

Congrats on buying the poster. I was the underbidder in that auction.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330500087621

In terms of retaining value, personally I would pay more for a poster in the original plastic than a framed one.

However, in terms of personal pleasure, it would obviously be nice to display it on a wall where it can be appreciated.

Just my 2 cents.

Fancy that! But, I don't know - Poems and Stories is one of my favourite books of all time (truly!) - and the box, with its stuck-on label, is one of its attractions.

Sadly, my copy (bought in a remainder shop twenty years ago for £10.00) lacks the tissue wrappers. But one can't have everything I suppose.

An eBay seller (themeadowlady) recenly sold a copy of Poems & Stories (1980), in a slipcase. She also had (I don't recall exactly; P&S stood in the memory more) either H or LotRs too, which was also in an slipcase or box; whatever, it was not usual for the impression. I asked about P&S, and was told that her father worked for GA&U and this was how it was given. It is a bit of a familiar reply, but seemed genuine enough. Makes me think some of these impressions, of all these deluxes, might genuinely have been distributed in both slipcases & boxes.

When it comes to posters, I don't consider re-sale value. If I like one enough, up it goes on the wall. If not (or, more likely if there's not enough room on the walls) I keep 'em in their wraps.

So, I recently bought a copy of this Pauline Baynes poster on eBay (the 7500 print run). It is still in the original plastic. Now, I have a quick question, as I do not usually collect posters.

I was thinking of getting it framed. Would it retain its value better if I kept it in the original plastic?

I welcome any thoughts or comments.

Josh
